On daffodil day the flowers looked beautiful in the spring sunshine! These are the beautiful daffodils planted by the children from Carnaross National School in conjunction with Pride of Place. As part of the Youth Daffodil Challenge, it was planned to sell them this weekend in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. The daffodil bulbs will double and come back better than ever next year and hopefully so will our community after COVID 19 and this time next year we will have an abundance of daffodils to sell for this deserving cause.

19th May 2020 Dear Parents, We hope you and your families are keeping well during these trying times. Thank you for your continued support over the past number of weeks. We would like to express our condolences to all of you who have been bereaved at this time. Once again, we are sorry to be saying goodbye to another wonderful 6th class, but more so this year under these circumstances. However, we are planning a special end of year Mass and Graduation Ceremony (6th class only) which will take place in St. Ciaran’s Church, Carnaross at 7.30pm on Thursday 23rd July. Due to Covid 19 restrictions and social distancing this ceremony will be confined to the 6th class pupil and their parents. Unfortunately, it was not possible to celebrate First Holy Communion on May 16th as planned. However, the children were remembered in a special way by Fr. Walsh at mass on Sunday 17th. A new date will be rescheduled for First Holy Communion on our return to school and we all look forward to that joyful occasion. Teachers are continuing to post weekly work plans for their class on the school website in the Home Learning section.  We encourage you all to keep up the great work by sending in emails of the specified work to your child’s teacher. Teachers check over the work received and return positive, constructive feedback to the children on a regular basis. They also post any pictures/photos sent in on the class gallery page. In this way, the strong connection between home and school is promoted and the children feel motivated to engage with the work set by their teacher.  We are conscious of the fact that normally June would be ‘Homework Free’ so with this in mind we plan to dedicate the week beginning June 15th to Wellbeing, incorporating lots of wellbeing and physical exercises in a holistic manner.  Any Wellbeing worksheets in the children’s boxes should be completed during this week. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Gerry Poynton our IT Consultant who has worked tirelessly to keep our website updated. The calendar for school year 2020/21 is posted on the school website and your child’s booklist for next year is also available. A list of teachers and their classes for 20/21 will also be posted on the website and a text will be sent informing you of your child’s teacher. End of year school reports will be posted in June.  The Department of Education and Skills has cancelled Standardised Tests for this year. We will be asking parents to return all books on book rental to the school on Monday and Tuesday 15th and 16th of June. More details to follow. If you have any queries or concerns please contact me at office@carnarossns.ie or by phone on 087 9984612. Thanking you for your continued support. Yours sincerly Dervilla Finnegan Principal

As we head into the final month of the school  year I bring to your attention four resources  that the FAI have developed over the past few  months that you may find useful for June and  into July and August.
FAI Homeskills FAI have just wrapped up on Week 7 of the FAI Homeskills videos. Every weekday  at 11am on the FAI Grassroots Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages, a new skill  is introduced by  Ambassadors, current and former Republic of Ireland  internationals, with a demonstration of the skill by  FAI Development Officers, and  current Domestic and International players. Each day, you are invited to submit  your own video of performing the skill for a chance to win a FAI Goodie Bag. The  library of all 35 skills is available on YouTube: FAI Homeskills. All that is required is  a ball and a small area of space. 
FAI Guide to Healthy Eating FAI recently re-launched their Healthy Eating Guide in conjunction with  SPAR to encourage parents and kids who are at home to eat healthy and  learn some new dishes that are favourites of our Men’s and Women’s Senior International players. They have twenty recipes in total and put up three  new recipes each week, there are eleven up on the website to date. All recipes can be found here: FAI Healthy Eating Guide
No Barriers At Home In February FAI launched the No Barriers programme, a joint initiative with  London to promote UEFA EURO 2020 and teach children about players who  have overcome barriers in their lives. There are twelve inspirational stories,  one from each of the host cities of UEFA EURO 2020. FAI created all videos  and resources in both English and Irish for schools to use. It may be useful  for 2nd – 6th class over the next month because FAI  has updated the  programme to make it accessible for children at home and  are encouraging  them to upload their work, it’s also a fun way of keeping up their Gaeilge by listening to the videos. Here is the students page: Student Resources. Here is the information on the programme: No Barriers At Home
We Will Draw FAI also have created some fun colouring pages of current Republic of  Ireland Senior Internationals for children #WeWillDraw    Website https://www.fai.ie/ireland/news/wewilldraw-ireland-international-stars
Hopefully these resources will be useful and your children will get great enjoyment from engaging in the activities
